Ronda Rousey : UFC champ thrashes body shamers calling her 'masculine'

Ronda Rousey, who is being massively trolled and called “masculine”, has thrashed her body shamers by stating that it’s because of her job to she ought to keep her body strong.

That a professional fighter can be criticised for being too muscly is, in the words of Rousey herself, “hilarious”. Keeping her body strong is, after all, her job.

“If people say my body looks masculine or something I’m like, listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f…… millionaires, doesn’t mean it’s masculine,” she said in a recent UFC interview.

“I think it’s femininely badass as f… because there’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose.”

She admits she’s “not very eloquent but to the point”.

Rouse is known to not beat around the bush in her interviews, calling out Floyd Mayweather’s history with domestic violence when she was last month named ESPY’s Best Fighter.

“I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once. I’d like to see you pretend to not know who I am now,” she said.

During a previous interview, in response to a hypothetical question about who would win in a fight between her and Mayweather, Rousey said: “I don’t think me and him would ever fight unless we ended up dating.”
